    I was just thinking and The Lord showed me

    something. He showed me a desk and in front of the desk was me and behind the desk was God. There was a row behind Him of stacked up files that were separated into piles. Another one of His children were in front of me and God handed him a file. When it was my turn to go up, I...

    Those who learned to know death,

    rather than to fear and fight it, become our teachers about life. Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose. Dying is nothing to fear. It can be the most wonderful experience of your life. It all depends on how...

    It's not a cliche. I believe God is working

    every moment and connecting things and people in our lives to come together for a purpose. We may not always know the reason but when we do get to discover it, it's amazing πŸ’–

    Good or bad, right or wrong,

    everything does have a reason, I think. It is easier to say when you are not the one affected by the travesties committed by our fellow man personally, but the truth is, I have. And I still think all happens for a reason. Too many things in my life have been coincidence. On my...

    Everything happens for a reason,

    including why we are born into this world. Sometimes, even though things are tough, they are there to teach us an important lesson in life. We meet different kinds of people in life and each and individual one of them appears in our lives for a reason.

    I believe there are two ways to go through

    Everything does happen

    for a reason. You may not know the reason right away but once it happens you will get a "wow" moment and then realize why everything happened: one of the best feelings is realizing now why something happened

    I really do believe things happen

    for a reason and a reason why if time travel was possible it can likely cause a time-paradox. Most things in life are meant to happen. I know you wish your friend or family member were not dead but if its your time to go then it is.

    for a reason, good or bad it happened. Now the question is are you going to appreciate it, lament yourself for life, learn from it, do something about it or just sit there and do nothing? Learn, it's never too late

    there's no such things as coincidence, that means everything really happens for a reason, its for us on how to deal with it, or how we accept things and learn from it, maybe a lesson to learn or leave it as it is..
